July 7, 2006 (Friday)


The theme of this year's 135th Labour Day Parade is "A MILLION REASONS TO VOTE" and will be held on Monday, September 4th 2006. On behalf of the Local Executive Committee, I would like to invite you and your families to make arrangements to come out and attend this annual event.

The parade as usual, will assemble on University Avenue, north of Queen Street and will commence promptly at 10:00am.

I have enclosed for your information this year's parade line-up and you will note that C.U.P.W. (both the Scarborough and Toronto Locals) are in 3rd. position (6th Local Union to march in the parade) of the total 41 Local Unions participating. Along with the Union/Local line up, I also have attached a map where the Scarborough Local will meet at 9:45am.

The Local Organization Committee has prepared T-shirts, donuts and refreshments for those members and their families who participate in the parade. The admissions to the C.N.E. is free for those members and their families who march in the parade.

Also the committee has rented a cargo style minivan and a large flatbed truck from Frankie’s Float Service to be used as a floats in the parade. These vehicles may assist some members with walking breaks throughout the parade, BUT CANNOT be used to transport members throughout the parade route. Anyone interested to help decorate these vehicles please contact the Local Office.

We hope to see you all there, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at the Local Union office (416) 412-1100.


In Solidarity
